When it comes to clearing jumps in Forza Horizon 5, these cars make for the best choices.

p>Playground Games has delivered again, with the largest, sleekest, and perhaps most thrilling installment of Forza Horizon to date. Taking place in the lush, expansive, and varied setting of Mexico, Forza Horizon 5 captivates players with tons of fun events, exciting challenges, and awe-inspiring sights to see. Making its return are the intimidating, yet exhilarating Danger Signs. These task players with going the distance across various ramps, hills, and cliffs scattered about.

Factoring in these Danger Signs and PR Stunts — as well as the generally bumpy, mountainous terrain of Mexico — there's no shortage of wild rides to be had in FH5. Thus, it's a good idea to find cars that can sufficiently handle these leaps of faith when sifting through the extensive lineup of cars in the game.

Updated April 1, 2022, by Stephen LaGioia: Following the blazing trails of its predecessors, Forza Horizon 5 hit the ground running and hasn't looked back since. Along with some gorgeous locales, players have found themselves enticed by a seemingly endless amount of fun content. Playground Games has kept the momentum rolling with the release of Series 6, which brings new cars, cosmetics, and events into the fray.

The update also builds upon user-made content and online gameplay, with EventLab Blueprints and other custom features. With so much wild, action-packed gameplay to delve into, it's a good idea to have cars well-equipped and optimized for some hang time. This is especially true given the addition of Super Wheelspins, which are now rewarded for Seasonal PR Stunts. With that in mind, this list has been updated to include more of the best cars for jumps and Danger Signs in Forza Horizon 5.

15 Mosler MT900S

Its immensely sleek, lavish design should give an indication as to what a speed demon the Mosler can be on the road. This American-made supercar dates all the way back to Forza Motorsport 3, and continues to shine on FH5 on multiple levels. With a 7.0L supercharged V8 engine and 530 bhp, this car will simply leave all but the fastest of opponents trailing in the dust. At just 320,000 CR at the Autoshow, it's not too pricey either.

This doesn't just aid in racing, but it also allows players to clear those Danger Signs more effectively, as the car really hits the ground running. On top of this, its superb handling (9.8) enables drivers to line up their launch angle, making for higher, more controlled leaps. As one might expect, offroading is a little shakier with the Mosler—but it's definitely a must-pick for Danger Signs in controlled environments.

14 AMG Transport Dynamics M12S Warthog CST

Much like the FPS franchise from which it stems, the landscapes of FH5 are wrought with some rocky and rugged terrain. Unlike Halo, Forza players won't need to deal with any pesky Covenant—but they do still need to contend with plenty of daunting Danger Signs and bumpy rides. The Warthog is great for that, but will cost players a pretty penny, selling at 850,000 CR at the Autoshow.

This hog can power through just about anything in its path, with its 8.0L twin-turbocharged V8 engine and 720 bhp. Its robust design, thick tires, and solid suspension allow it to handle the turbulent areas of Mexico without a sweat. It's not going to blow drivers' hair back in terms of speed, but its stellar maneuverability, launch, and ideal chassis for off-roading make the hog a beast for jumps.

13 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4

Like many supercars of its ilk, this Lambo can really thrive when it comes to ramps and jumps tailored to streets—though proves less reliable for flying through hilly, offroad locales. Still, this car is an ideal choice as it can sprint to 60 mph in just a few seconds, hitting a sky-high top speed of 232 mph. This comes courtesy of a V12 engine, 700 bhp, and all-wheel-drive.

For these reasons, the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is well worth the investment, especially for those road warriors. Players can land it at the Autoshow for a fairly modest 380,000 CR.

12 TVR Cerbera Speed 12

This UK-assembled car may invoke a bit of FH4 nostalgia, but it still gets the job done when it comes to FH5's variety of events and stunts. The Cerbera can impressively ignite to a top speed of 240 mph, and hits 60 in just over three seconds.

While not really an offroad fiend, the Cerbera is built with solid braking and handling, which makes it much easier to deal with wilder, hilly terrain. Players can get it at the Autoshow for 500,000 CR.

11 Aston Martin Vantage

James Bond would be thrilled to take a ride in this sports car, which makes for a versatile and reliable pick that is great for cross-country. At the same time, the Aston Martin Vantage can be quite good for setting up Danger Sign jumps, thanks to its stellar speed, great handling, and respectable launch statistics.

No longer requiring the Car Pass DLC like FH4, this car can now be secured by simply purchasing it at the Autoshow for 430,000 CR. Not bad, considering the high price of admission in earlier Forza games.

10 Ferrari 599XX Evolution

Surpassing the already swift standard 599XX, this speed demon can hit a solid 240 mph without breaking a sweat. Not only this, but its steady handling at high speeds ensures smooth, steady leaps over the treacherous jumps strewn about the rough Mexican locales. These qualities also make this luxury supercar ideal for Speed Trap PR Stunts and Speed Zone runs.

Above-average launching also helps this Ferrari when it comes to flying off ramps and going the distance. This beaut can be bought from the Autoshow for 2,600,000 CR.

9 Toyota #1T100 Baja Truck

Making its welcome return as a Barn Find, this 90's classic is truly built to handle the often rugged lands of Mexico with its offroad prowess. Its suspension system is built to absorb the rough rides to and across the various Danger Signs.

While not exactly the quickest car when it comes to jumps, its springy nature more than makes up for this deficit, allowing it to get ample air as it propels off ramps and hills. It also helps that it's equipped with a more-than-capable launch stat to get it churning quickly.

8 Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4

This hypercar won't come cheap, as it demands a whopping 2,300,000 CR when buying at the Autoshow. Yet, considering it's one of the fastest, most potent cars in the game, it's well worth the investment.

This awesome Lambo is equipped with a 6.5L Naturally-Aspirated V12 engine and boasts 759 bhp. Factor in its solid grip around corners, and its ability to zip to 60 mph in three seconds, and one can see why it's a great choice for lengthy jumps.

The Centenario is also laced with a rear wing that deploys at 60 mph (small potatoes for this car), acting as a sort of makeshift glider that allows it to soar. A rare weakness comes in the form of its longer braking distance — though this is usually a non-factor when tackling those long jumps anyway.

7 Rimac Concept Two

Rocking 1887 bhp, this potent electric car from Croatia is underappreciated when it comes to speed and power. It has an impressive ability to hit 258 mph thanks to its quad electric motors. Speed, launch, and acceleration are all top-notch statistically, making it a great choice for positioning oneself for extensive leaps.

The 2021 version of this vehicle was tagged the "Nevera," which fittingly translates to "a sudden, short storm accompanied by lightning" in Croatian. Purchase this lightning-fast hypercar at the Autoshow for 2,000,000 CR.

6 Bugatti Divo

Laced with a solid 1479 bhp and an 8.0: Quad-Turbocharged W16, this French hypercar's got it where it counts. Its rear wing, smooth mechanics, and ergonomic design that stresses driving dynamics offer some smooth, even-keeled jumps.

At the same time, this beast can easily churn at a speed that approaches 250 mph, setting the stage for some wild, extensive rides in the sky. Assuming players take the time and effort to save up, they can score this gem at the Autoshow for 3,000,000 CR.

5 Lamborghini Sesto Elemento

With stellar statistics and mechanics across the board, there are few cars that are more prominent when it comes to all-around capabilities. This is especially the case when it comes to the exclusive Forza Edition, of which the Sesto can be scored via Wheelspin or Super Wheelspin prize. For players that aren't quite so lucky, the default model can still be bought at the Autoshow for 2,5000,000 CR.

While its top speed is fairly lukewarm for a supercar bearing the Lambo moniker, its abilities elsewhere more than make up for it. This includes an ergonomic build and light weight that allow the Sesto to glide through the air, and impressive acceleration that revs up to 100 mph in just 5 seconds.

As one might expect, this trait — coupled with smooth handling and sharp turning make it ideal for Street Races as well.

4 Porsche Taycan Turbo S

This German sports car runs on a state-of-the-art battery-electric and drivetrain with a permanent-magnet synchronous motor laced to each axle. Also a terrific choice for drag races, the Taycan boasts perfect statistics in speed and launch, as well as near-perfect acceleration. This allows the lightning-quick electric car to hit impressive speeds in the blink of an eye, making it a breeze to set up for Danger Signs.

This car can be scored by way of the Welcome Pack, and shows up as a Wheelspin prize and "Discovery Connoisseur" accolade.

3 Hoonigan Ford RS200 Evolution

A fan-favorite from Forza Horizon 4, this classic Ford makes its return in emphatic fashion. It helps that it's easier to secure this time around, with a respectable asking price of 500,000 CR at the Autoshow.

A potent stock engine (2.1L Turbocharged l4 with 750 bhp), allows this versatile car to hit 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds and goes from 0 to 100 in just under 5. Its tremendous grip abilities and even-keeled driving make it a great choice for off-road racing and dirt roads. This quality — and top-notch acceleration — are ideal for Danger Signs, which are typically off the beaten paths of Mexico.

2 Koenigsegg Jesko

This Swedish manufacturer has had no shortage of great cars over the course of the Forza franchise, and this top-of-the-line hypercar may be the best of the best.

Superb handling and braking make it great for scoring loads of skill points, though the Jesko is also great with Danger Signs and jumps given its warp speeds that break the 300 mph barrier. This comes at the hands of an impressive 5.0L Twin-Turbocharged V8 with 1280 bhp.

Its price may seem steep at 2,800,000 CR via the Autoshow, but players get ample bang for their virtual bucks.

1 BMW X5 M Forza Edition

Along with the Jesko, this German SUV is largely recognized as the go-to when it comes to leaping across the cliffs, hills, and ramps of Mexico. Not only does it have a unique rear wing to help it glide through the air, but the X5 offers an overall smooth, fairly speedy ride for an affordable 100,000 CR.

While the default model is capable enough, the pre-tuned Forza Edition (500,000 CR) is well worth the investment, with its unique body kit, and Sr 998 Performance Index that gives it nearly flawless statistics all-around. Keep in mind, this potent model requires the VIP Membership pack. Danger Sign or no, the X5 M FE is currently one of the best cars in the game, pound for pound.
